Our Blue Planet

As the world reels from the COVID pandemic we have been reminded of the central role science plays in finding solutions to the planet’s biggest challenges. The United Nations Decade of Ocean Science is providing a once in a lifetime opportunity for us to work together to generate the global ocean science needed to support a sustainable ocean economy. The NOC Ocean Alliance is a group of passionate, empowered companies and individuals who understand that the actions we take during this decade will determine the future of our blue planet and our civilisation.

When we use ocean science to understand the ocean and its ecosystems, we are in a better position to know how to not only preserve it, but also to manage it to ensure that it is protected for the future.

Professor Ed Hill CBE, NOC Chief Executive
